About Van

Let me tell you a little bit about myself, my background, and my passion for America.  My story consists of three components: growing up, working life, and serving others.

Mr. Clair Van Steenwyk AZS’ Grassroots GOP US Senate Candidate, is filed with the FEC and is 1st to Qualify for AZS’ August 30, 2016 Primary Ballot with over 10,000+ signatures which is 180% of required amount needed to qualify.

Clair Van Steenwyk grew up in Bellflower, California with Loving parents who saw to it we attended Church and Sunday every Sunday with perfect attendance for 14yrs. in Sunday School and of course the normal stuff school, summers in Ia., cruising in my 55 Chevy, and beginning my working life at 9 as my Father told all of us if you want spending money you’ll have to earn it, so I did and worked after school and summers from then on and enjoyed having spending monies, this I do believe gave me the incentive later on to start my own businesses and manage others, as being raised that way was normal then and wish it still was as it’s never to early to teach children to be responsible.  I became active in politics since President Eisenhower’s Re Election Campaign in 1956 and active at some level ever since as my wife Jean and I served as PCs, State Committeemen and Delegates to State Conventions, Hosted Candidate Forums, Political Events for Candidates using my Radio Show. Rallies and Fundraisers as well as circulating petitions and aiding in others campaigns.

 Clair Van Steenwyk AZS’ US Senate Candidate was a Successful Businessman prior to becoming a Political Radio Talk Show Host from 2004 to 14 as the Host of Crossroads with Van in California, Idaho, Florida and Phoenix Markets as well as  simulcasting on the Internet, he’s spoken and been the moderator at events and rallies. His expertise was in the field of interviewing politicians, candidates and others on Issues, Policies and Votes vs. their promises made and usually broken.

 Van worked in the Food Industry since the 1970s and retired as an Executive, Van and his wife Jean also operated a Christian outreach on LAs’ skid row, Hollywood Blvd.,  Outreach to a Village in Mexico and a Christian Halfway House in Bellflower, Ca.

 Van’s been asked to run for office for yrs., however declined due to his business profession and Christian Outreach kept them busy, until he observed most running or serving in office Records vs. their Rhetoric didn’t match. Van doesn’t believe the current Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate can’t fix the country as Records vs. Rhetoric don’t match, Van believes most either trying to extend an already lengthy political career or move up the political ladder, whereas he has no intention of having a Career and only entered into this endeavor believing he has the skill and mind set to get the job done and then return to private life.

In Closing I believe this Election Cycle is Critical for the Nation as to whether we sink deeper into a Socialistic Nation or Restore Ourselves to a True Republic form of Government.  The choices in the race for US Senate are clear, Rhetoric vs. Records Sen. McCain who’s proven to be untrustworthy on Veterans Issues, Border Issues, Legal Status, Patriot Act etc., Rhetoric vs. Records,  State Senator Ward who sponsored, amended bills in Ward’s Senate ED Committee the amendment to HB 2184, Watch Short Video and Ward’s amended SB 1038 & voted for the Amended SB 1469 taking authority from AZ Superintendent Diane Douglas and handing it over to the Governor’s hand picked Board / Czars of Education, Watch Short Video, proves she’s does what the GOP Leadership tells her to do and no reason to believe she won’t do the same in DC.

We are a Constitutional Representative Republic based on Judeo-Christian principles, yet are being dictated to by a federal government that seemingly ignores the Constitution at every turn.  I measure our Constitution against the laws Congress continues passing having no authority behind them, which is not only disappointing but also violates the Constitution and their Oaths.

The solution to the nation’s problems is to bring the Federal Government into Compliance with the U.S. Constitution. Thank you for taking the time to read this statement and hope you’ll join us in our goal as well as share with your Friends and others as well.
